The AWIS Star Chapter designation is awarded to those chapters that have accomplished many of the key objectives outlined in the AWIS Strategic Plan and exemplify what a successful AWIS chapter program should look like.

AWIS-SD has received Star Chapter recognition from AWIS National for the second year in a row. This award is given to chapters that have accomplished many of the key objectives outlined in the AWIS Strategic Plan, exemplifying what a successful AWIS chapter program should look like. Initiated in 2013, 15 Star Chapters were awarded last year. Chapters apply in the fall and must cite at least 7 achievements that fit the AWIS Strategic Plan goals..
Thanks to our dedicated volunteers who organize our chapter’s many activities, we are able to demonstrate that AWIS-SD is aligned with the AWIS Strategic Plan. These include: our active social media presence, Strategy Sessions, Newsletters, Open House, and much more.
